After graduating in 2006 with Honours in Aeronautical Engineering, Richard joined Vector directly from Glasgow University as a Graduate Technical Services Engineer.

Working closely with Senior Management, Richard embarked on a 3-year graduate training programme, which provided him with a robust foundation in continuing airworthiness and its associated management processes. During this period, Richard supported several private and commercial clients operating various aircraft types.

Having completed the graduate training programme in 2009, Richard was promoted to Technical Services Engineer and subsequently to Airworthiness Engineer in 2010. He then became Technical Services Manager and ARC Signatory (Extension) in 2014, which led to Richard assuming responsibility for Technical Support of managed fleets and; import and export of aircraft in support of client fleet changes.

Since May 2015, Richard has taken up the post of Vectors' Continuing Airworthiness Manager, while retaining the functions of the Technical Services Manager. He is responsible for the continued airworthiness of the aircraft managed under Vector’s Part M approval.
